So today was hill day. Super slow at 17 minutes a mile but did 45 minutes up and down the hill known as Lipbuster at the local trail area. It’s about 10 stories worth of uphill at a 30 to 45 degree slope. Uphill is a walk, downhill is a scramble.
it runs North / South and is open so wind is an issue. It funnels any wind pretty harshly and going down hill with that cold wind makes me tear up which makes scrambling down the hill a hair dangerous.
Total elevation change for 45 minutes was right around 1050 feet. We’re going to be including more of these hill days in our training as the 50k’s that look the best have 1000’s of feet of elevation change.
